Strictly Come Dancing's Mark Wright has admitted he "doesn't know why" he has been getting so emotional on the show lately.

Following Sunday night's results episode, Mark was left teary-eyed after finding out he was safely through to the next round of the competition.

Overcome with emotion, the ex-TOWIE star was unable to speak, but insisting his waterworks aren't intentional, Mark has said he "doesn't want" to be seen crying on TV!

Yesterday, Mark joined his dance partner Karen Haeur to appear on BBC Breakfast.

Speaking on the show, the 27-year-old admitted: "I don't know why I'm getting so emotional… I don't want to! I tried to hold it in, but they threw me straight on camera, so I had no choice."

Putting his tears down to feeling the nerves before his routines, Mark added: "The emotion, the nerves, the pressure you feel before you go on to that dance floor are indescribable.

"Once you're done and you're relieved you're through again, all that pressure just goes at once – it just always results in tears for me!"

After breaking down on Sunday's show, Mark took to Twitter to apologise for getting so emotional, telling his followers that he loved being on Strictly and didn't want to leave after his close call the week before.

Narrowly avoiding being sent home, Mark recently survived his dance off with Bargain Hunt star Tim Wonnacott.

Desperate to not lose out on his place in the competition, Mark vowed to give it his all on Saturday to make sure he stays and, after scoring a top score of 33 - his best so far, he did just that.

"To get 33 was a bit of a dream come true," Mark said. "I couldn't have hoped for a better score... I'm not a natural dancer."

Unlike Mark, rugby star Thom Evans wasn't so lucky and he became the fourth celebrity to leave Strictly.

Speaking about his shock exit, Mark said he believes "nobody is safe" when it comes to the public vote.

"Every week you just have to go into it like it's your last dance," Mark said. "Give it you're all to make sure you're not in that dance off and if you are, you just need to make sure you win so you can stay."

This weekend, Mark and Karen will take on the Jive as they join the remaining 10 couples to dance again in front of the panel.

Strictly Come Dancing continues this Saturday (1 November) at 6.30pm and this Sunday (2 November) at 7.20pm.
